    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Initiative (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2019.

    Interview

    I got the HR screening through employee referral. The recruiter is very responsive in terms of communication. I was invited to the office for an onsite interview with other candidates. I thought it's going to be a group interview with all the candidates, but it turns out to be a panel interview. The interview is very laid back, everyone that I met with is very nice. There is no sharp questions. Questions are mostly about past experiences. I received an email after one day that they decide to pursue another candidate based on experience. Overall, the whole interview process is very smooth. I'm willing to come back for other opportunities.

    Global Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Initiative (New York, NY) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Interviewed with HR and sent her times for in-person interview. In-person interview was a panel with two teammates instead of one as indicated via email but I was fine with it. They were both very friendly. This was followed by the interview with the Hiring Manager.

    About 1 week after the interview an ex-colleague (whom I had coached, etc.) messaged me that she just got an offer for a Global Director position. I contacted HR immediately to see if they had extended the offer to another candidate. HR scheduled a follow-up call with me, where she told me that I was a close second to a candidate that was a little more technical. I straight up asked her if it was <ex-colleague name> and she confirmed yes. Sometimes life works in the most mysterious ways. I ended the call by wishing all of them the best of luck.

They want to see that you're organized, willing to learn, and have a personality that aligns with their culture. Interviewed with multiple teams back to back, in a span of 2 hours.
